The CAS IT Services' Instructional Computer Lab (ICL) in Gateway 141 is a "220" classroom, which means its scheduling is managed at the College level instead of by the Registrar. To schedule a class in the ICL, departments must first reserve their class time with CAS IT Services before submitting an R-6 to the Registrar to list their course time and location in the Schedule of Classes.
When to Schedule Classes
Reservations are scheduled in the ICL on a first-come, first-served basis. CAS IT Services encourages instructors and departments to submit their requests as far in advance as possible.
Available time slots in the ICL fill up early, so it's best to request your reservations at least six (6) to eight (8) months before the semester is scheduled to start.
How to Schedule Classes
- building and room number you wish to reserve (GATE 141)
- course and section number of class (example: ENGL 1310.001)
- date of the first class session to be taught in the ICL
- date of the last class session to be taught in the ICL
- frequency the class will meet (once per week or twice per week, and which days)
- starting and ending time of the class
- date and time of Final Exam, if to be held in the ICL
- instructor's name
- instructor's email address
- instructor's department
- instructor's office phone number
- if a data projector will be required, preferred, or not needed)
- software required for the course (see list of available software)
- number of students expected to register for course
The ICL operational budget comes from academic fees from our three supporting colleges/schools:
- College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences (CLASS) and Mayborn School of Journalism
- College of Science (CoS)
- College of Information (CI)
This academic fee is paid by students enrolled in courses offered by the various departments in these three schools/colleges, so there is typically no additional cost to these departments to reserve class time in the ICL. However, additional fees may be charged if:
- special software must be purchased and installed to meet the needs of the class
- the reservation increases the ICL's operational costs for the semester
- the academic fee was not collected for the class in question
Because the ICL is funded through academic fees, departments or other units outside of CAS must pay an equivalent usage fee to be able to reserve time in the ICL.
